This recipe is from Linda Shapiro. I have many rugelach recipes, but this is truly the best I have ever made.

Walnut Cups

Everyone in my family loves this cookie, they're like little pecan pies, and you can make them with pecans instead of walnuts if you choose. You will need a mini muffin pan for this recipe.

Buttery and nutty refrigerator cookies made with brown sugar for a caramel flavor.

The Rebbetzin Chef's Persian Walnut Cookies

Rating: Unrated
These delicately-spiced, rose-scented cookies are the perfect treat for Passover since they contain no flour. They are nutty and rich, slightly chewy with a crunchy exterior. Pistachios or almonds can be substituted for the walnuts.

I modified Beatrice's Excellent Oatmeal cookies very slightly. I came up with something that my boyfriend went CRAZY over! I've never seen him enjoy cookies to that extent! He said I blew his mother's recipe away.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

I personally think these are the best brownies in the world. Try them, I think you'll agree! To make the brownies rich and buttery, use melted butter instead of the vegetable oil.

You may have heard this story...a woman asks to buy a cookie recipe and is told it will cost 'two-fifty.' She thinks this means $2.50, but then she gets her credit card bill back and finds out it is $250.00. Outraged, she spreads the recipe far and wide to try and get her money's worth. I first heard this story 6 years ago and was given a recipe on a sheet of paper which bore the date '1986.' The supposed originator of the recipe was a well-known cookie company. I have since heard this tale again several times, with the recipe originating from different upscale department stores. True story? Who knows, but it's a darn good cookie. Here's my version.
